Goyararu Tai Chi involves YOUR PATH to YOUR MIND via YOUR BODY. Not everyone moving, breathing and feeling the same, but creating yourself as an individual promoting your own persona.

The very process of life and living is based on motion. Goyararu means Path to the Mind via the Physical body. It would be true to say that without motion the very nature of our physical, psychic and spiritual worlds would cease to exist. An understanding of motion leads to a greater harmony and integration between the individual and their environment; internally and externally!

All moves in Goyararu must contain thought and emotional content, from passivity through to vigour; or any feeling each person introduces regardless of age, ability or gender.This gives `life` to movement and constitutes to an individual’s energy source.

Tai Chi Classes start on Tuesday 23rd July 10:30 to 11:30am.




Relaxation and proper coordinated breathing is vital for everyday life and the correct execution of everything we do, from Martial Arts, gymnastics, running and walking, to standing, sitting, resting and sleeping. Goyararu Tai Chi have movements that are energetic, others soft, some rapid others slow, one move followed by another in uninterrupted, rhythmic harmony, like a flowing stream. Each individual creating their own personalised moves.


If we consider the attitude of Tai Chi as being yielding, flowing, passive and relaxing(Yin),  then Sena Dasi is the other end of the scale and viewed to be blinkered, inflexible, merciless and lacking in compromise.(yang)

Sena Dasi is a state of mind, terrible, very personal and powerful that’s treacherous and difficult to overcome, concealing the true consequences and shame of your actions. It remains hidden in your every task, prowling and waiting to devour and destroy anything that lies in its path or threatens its very existence. If it`s ignored and not confronted it will justify every action, with no other point of view taken into account, it becomes stronger and stronger and without question misguides you throughout life.

Understanding Sena Dasi gives the practitioner a balanced training method with Tai Chi. (Yin & Yang) and is the fundamental foundation stone of philosophy within the Art of Goyararu.

Warning: Practicing Sena Dasi incorrectly without proper supervision is dangerous and can cause not only physical but intellectual and emotional damage.

The pace of modern day living is such that it places great demands upon energy resources of the body. This constant demand if unchecked can eventually lead to nervous illnesses, constant fatigue, loss of vitality and a host of other such troubles.

Goyararu training will eventually enable you to rid your body of all conscious tensions, which are the root cause of most energy draining factors, by concentrating on the unnecessary tensions of various muscles hindering rest and correct movement: this can only be observed when control over these tensions, (i.e. relaxation), is achieved.
